Programme accreditation

Since 2015, with the entry into force of the Higher Education Act (HEdA), programme accreditation is no longer mandatory in Switzerland. Programmes are covered by institutional accreditation.

Since 1998, the master programmes (curricula) of the EPFL have been regularly accredited by the French Commission des titres d’ingénieur (CTI). On a voluntary basis, EPFL has submitted to the CTI a request for re-accreditation of 14 programmes and the accreditation of 5 new  programmes (having already delivered degrees). These programs will obtein the EUR-ACE label. The expert’s visit took place in July 2022.

More information is provided below (state 2.11.2022, master mentioned in the Ordonnace sur la formation à l’EPFL).
